Run External program

Post by edanm » Thu Feb 09, 2012 4:39 pm

Is there any way to run an external program on a file in the result list? This would be major for me, mostly to open files with vim.

Can you explain more ?
If I search for *.txt, select all (ctrl+a) and right click and select open, all files shown is open in my editor?

Also, there is a cmdline for ES and a SDK, so what ever you want to do with the results should be possible. :D

Vim (GVIM) has an option to set itself up on a right-click context menu, "Edit with Vim", it says.

Works.
Has always worked.
Use it all the time to edit files found with Everything.

I also use the 'Send To' context menu items a lot with everything.
